Voting is easy!

1. Your username is your Member number. Your Member number is listed on the address portion of the flyer you will have received in the mail or can be found on the back of your Member card, remember to only use the last 4 or 5 digits after the zeroes.

2. Your password is the first initial of your first name and your entire last name (all in lowercase). If your last name is hyphenated or includes an apostrophe, please keep them in. For example, if your name was “Co-op Member-Worker,” your password would be “cmember-worker.”

3. The online ballot includes the candidates’ pictures, their full candidate statements, and their resumes (in random order). You can also find this information on this webpage and in the elections flyer you should have received in the mail. This is the seventh year of our new rating system that shows you which learning opportunities each candidate completed. Review the information inside your elections flyer for more details.

4. Please vote for no more than 3 candidates. Once you’ve completed voting, you will be issued a confirmation receipt from the Simply Voting system. Candidates will be chosen by simple majority, so the three candidates who receive the most votes will be elected for 3-year terms, starting January 2021 and ending December 2023.
